Dr. Connor's arm, in part one... he is shown to have two at times, (the first half of the book), then one. Then two for a page, then one.... why on Earth did the editor not catch this??

@InnerVenom123: It's probably not a mistake... 
Take note that the gauntlet is a story line where the bad guys get upgrades... So maybe it's a new ability...

Amazing that im not the only one that spotted this, Gauntlet is a storyline where the villains are upgraded and more serious as we once knew them. But why would they have Dr Conners miracle grow his arm at will when he's human is beyond me, but what I do know, is that if they did intend to have Dr Conners miracle grow his arm, then that is byfar the most pot-head idea that I have ever seen. That is as stupid as having the Vulture fly only three inches off the ground without his wings.  
 
I see where some people would probably try to defend this flaw, because the Gauntlet is such an awesome storyline. But Marvel editors, artist, and writers have made many mistakes before. I wouldn't say its a big one, and it could be recovered if the storyline does progress well. But I do believe its a full-blown fact that its a flaw, which makes a whole lot of sense.

It's not just that he had two arms, its that in the book, you can clearly see his arm disappear on some pages and re-appear on others.
